SAP API Automation with the help of UiPath

Apr 7, 2021, 12:00 – 1:15 PM


Join Stefan Schnell and Lev Kushnir to learn more about SAP API Automation with UiPath. During the event we will present and discuss different technical communication possibilities between an SAP backend system and UiPath. We will cover in deep following SAP interfaces: SAP RFC, SAP BAPI and SAP ABAP and the way of automating them with UiPath.

About this event

The use of an SAP Application Programming Interface (API) opens up many possibilities for developers to design automation processes more effectively.

In contrast to SAP GUI, the SAP APIs interfaces have predefined technical documentation, change guidelines and a versioning. In comparison to SAP UI automation, executing via API automation is much faster, resulting in optimization of long-running processes and maintaining stability across releases.

Various technical options for using APIs of SAP will be presented.

• The Remote Function Call (RFC) as the base concept.

• The Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI) as a formal variant

• The Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) language is the SAP programming language.

Each of these options grants a developer more access to the possibilities that an SAP system offers. This presentation is intended to give an impression of how technical connections via SAP API between SAP systems and UiPath can be realized and what automation possibilities arise from this connection.

The target audience of this event are RPA Developers and Citizen Developers who need to connect to the SAP backend via RFC and all who are interested in the topic of SAP API Automation.
